Designed for Success and Accountability

The curriculum incorporates various components that might include pre-assessments that help identify student strengths and areas to grow, activities that provide practice without penalty, and varied approaches to content introduction that help meet the needs of various learning styles. Comprehend Curriculum courses present information in the form of strategically sequenced modules that help students to master prerequisite skills before being introduced to more in-depth concepts. The Comprehend Curriculum has been carefully designed to align to state required TEKS. It is also designed to help students gain the knowledge and critical thinking skills needed for life beyond the classroom.
